On our first visit we had such a laugh! Good service and thoroughly enjoyed it. Second visit was less impressive. Ordered a beer and liquor but 15 minutes later they failed to appear. Had a meal to go to so just left. Very disappointed

Really don’t understand why the reviews for here are so good. I can only assume people visits to look at the penis decor and are impressed by it? The service is very slow and not particularly friendly. Food wasn’t great. Avoid the antipasti platter it’s...More

The bar Turrisi is a place of worship located in Castelmola. Founded in 1947 at the hands of the rider Salvatore Turrisi, was born as an inn for foreigners where they were sipping tasty almond wine made ​​with white grapes and infusion of bitter almonds. Structure after the war that has turned into a hotel, here you can enjoy over the almond wine, pizzas, pasta dishes ices and ice cream. Also extends over four elevations with views of the Duomo of Castelmola Gulf of Giardini Naxos and Mount Etna. He became famous for his sculptures representing the phallic worship and the very free social custom that made Taormina a cultural reference for many artists and not. Many magazines show us how one of the attractions of Sicily, but we like to think that convey a thought of being Sicilian and freedom of expression, in a structure difficult to manage since the 4 levels. Who does not know how to interpret these places far from wanting to be rude, and does not know or does not have the respect of all that, the place to find elsewhere.
